Hydroponic System

Toying with the idea of hydroponic vegetable growing for next year. Anyone done anything with such systems.
Eventually found suppliers in Turkey that will sell kits. Still makes them the most expensive vegetables in the country, but perhaps a bit of fun.

YouTube has a lot on this, and possible to do it much cheaper. Trying to work out the solution/fertiliser to use, so may have to buy that, at least if I canīt find the right ingredients. Most seem to use tomato fertiliser and then add a few bits as extras.

Re: Hydroponic System

Do you bring the birdseed from the UK? I was looking at the tower system, looks OK, but some of the prices below are ludicrous. It is supposed to be commercial but how do you recoup a 17k TL outlay?

Re: Hydroponic System

You donīt, but you could need some of the components depending on the system you want and the scale.
The YouTube videos below show you how to do the same for next to nothing. This is the style I am considering i.e. non-circulating system.

But just think of the endless fun you'll have watching those veggies copulate - oops populate

Re: Hydroponic System

great vids, thanks for posting, I think we will have a go at this. No weeding.... will have a think about the fertilizer, at the moment we are all organic and use a fertilizer which is made from cow dung (biofarm from the Pinar cows in Izmir), but it would be a bit smelly (We do dissolve it in water and leave it to break down for a few days before using it).
For container we are looking at the 2.5L yoghurt containers from Migros (we use a lot with muesli and fruit for breakfasts in the summer). I could not see how he sealed the down pipes that he used in the video.

Re: Hydroponic System

I think I will try the foam tube option. They are sold in many local shops as swimming aids. That does away with the need for cups.
I think it will need a combination of fertilisers to get the balance. They seem to use the tomato fertiliser as a base then add to that. I like the second video best but I donīt want the balcony to look so untidy, so may have to spend to get something that looks a little less rough.

ps you need black containers otherwise it will turn to green very quickly.

Re: Hydroponic System

Any type of paint will do as long as the light cannot pass, then the algae cannot grow.
